The Spektrum S1200 Smart Charger is the first DC Charger to feature Spektrum smart charging and battery technologies that when combined make charging virtually any battery easier, faster, safer and more convenient than ever before.
Smart Technology — More connected for more confidence and control
Spektrum™ Smart Technology is about offering a higher connection to your hobby. It's an RC ecosystem that puts you in complete control while making vital components of your model easier to use than ever before. Smart technology ensures that all of your model's electronics work together seamlessly for the greatest efficiency and performance. It keeps you aware of every component's status, boosts your confidence in its capabilities, and makes your entire system more responsive and simple to use.
Spektrum radios with Smart features can download firmware updates instantly using Wi-Fi and can swap setups with compatible radios via Bluetooth. Spektrum Smart LiPo batteries have a built-in microchip that records and communicates your charging preferences automatically to Smart chargers — just connect your pack and press "Start." Smart IC™ series connectors include an innovative data wire that transfers information easily between Smart components with a single connection. Finally, Smart ESCs not only deliver power but also eliminate the hassles from running telemetry. The days of installing and connecting multiple wires, sensors, modules and links are over.
The Spektrum™ S1200 Smart Charger is the first DC smart charger to feature Spektrum Smart Charging technology. Small and portable, this 200W charger features the brand new Spektrum IC3™ connector that delivers a robust connection that also reads vital battery content that relays to a bright LCD color display to clearly showing you how many charge cycles you have on the pack, and much more.
The Smart S1200 DC Charger requires a power supply for operation (SPMXC10201 or SPMXC10202 recommended).
Spektrum™ Smart Tech Video Overview
Smart Charging Technology
When connected to a Spektrum Smart Battery, unique parameters and health of your LiPo battery upload from the Smart memory microchip integrated into the battery. Through the charger, you can set and record preferred settings, such as charge rates and self-discharge options, so that all you have to do to charge the pack is press the “Start” button. Smart technology will take care of the rest. Every Smart LiPo charger is factory assembled with the next-generation IC3™ output connector that utilizes a data transfer pin to display saved battery information directly on the LCD screen.
Preset charge, discharge, and storage parameters are automatically relayed from your Spektrum Smart Battery making charging as simple as pressing the “Start” button. Charge rate of individual batteries can be user customized allowing you to take full advantage of packs with faster charge ratings. The integrated microchip on each battery will remember the last charging rate you set, so the next time you plug it in, these settings will automatically populate so all you have to do is press “start.” Another feature that the Smart microchip allows is single-connection balance charge. When you plug in your IC3 or IC5 battery, individual cell voltage is automatically relayed to the Smart charger and allows you to balance charge without fussing with standard balance connectors.
New IC3 & IC5 Connectors
The innovative Smart connection is made possible by an installed microchip on every battery, feeding the unique information through a data cable to the new IC3 and IC5 connectors. The IC series of connectors are designed from the ground up to provide a more solid connection, higher heat resistance, and effortless installation. Sprung bullets ensure a solid connection that is easy to connect and disconnect, while the convenient solder pads allow for easy installation on your device.
For those using the popular EC3 and EC5 connectors, there’s no need to worry. The IC connector series is entirely backwards compatible with existing connectors so you can use your Smart Charger with older batteries, but only when connected to a Spektrum Smart Battery are all the benefits of Smart technology obvious.
High visibility 2.4 inch color screen brightly displays all your vital information, even in bright sunlight.
When paired with a capable power supply, enjoy 200W of output power that lets you quickly charge large and high cell count batteries with ease.
Touch Wheel interface
A clean and intuitive touch wheel interface makes it easy to navigate all the settings on your Smart Charger. This clean and simple design keeps a sleek profile that is perfect for tossing in your field bag.
Efficient Cooling System
The internal cooling fan keeps the charger at a safe and efficient operating temperature, perfect for fast charging larger batteries.
Built in Protection
When combined with Spektrum Smart Batteries, the charger automatically recognizes battery chemistry, cell voltage, and capacity to ensure that you are always charging with correct settings, virtually eliminating the potential for charging incorrectly.
